Meet Your Test Preparation Instructors

With years of experience, knowledge, education, and expertise in the area of preparing students, our instructors come from a variety of job professions including lawyers, industry specialists and educators.

I had a great experience in this course. Craig was always willing to go the extra mile to help outside of class. He did an amazing job of keeping the class engaged and alert. Class was enjoyable and helpful.

He is currently finishing his PhD and teaching Introductory Philosophy courses at the University of South Carolina. Both in the Philosophy classroom and in Test Prep, Craig seeks to guide his students toward the questions that will carry them through their immediate studies and into further inquiry.

I feel much more confident and prepared for a very hard exam after completing this course! Laura is a phenomenal instructor!
